In Others’ Words: Closing the Distance
Last night I went browsing for a quote for today’s blog post. Searched my quote books. Searched my files. Searched online. Searched my Evernote Quote notebook. I skimmed all sorts of quotes. It wasn’t that I didn’t have a lot of quotes to choose from, it was just none of them were “pinging.”
And then I found these words by Victor Borge and I stopped all the skimming and mulling.
“Laughter is the closest distance between two people.”
How true is that? Isn’t it wonderful how laughter can break down the walls of uncomfortableness and silence created by “I don’t know you” and help strangers become friends? When my husband and I are in the middle of a (ahem!) “discussion,” if we can find a reason to laugh, the distance between us created by the whole insistence of who’s right and who’s wrong disappears. We can laugh together — not at one another — and find common ground again.
I thought it’d be fun to share just a bit of Victor Borge’s sense of humor with you all today. He had his own distinctive way of closing the distance between people. Enjoy!
In Your Words: How has laughter helped bridge the distance between you and someone else? Who’s your go-to comedian?
